Hey, you! Are you in the 44th Congressional District? Are you sick and tired of the (lack of) “representation” you’re getting from Creepy Ken Calvert? And would you finally like to do something to change this? If so, then your opportunity has arrived!
Bill Hedrick has been a fantastic advocate for the kids of Greater Corona-Norco on the Corona-Norco School Board, but now he’s ready to take his advocacy to a new level. He’s running for Congress, and he needs our help. Follow me after the flip to find out how YOU can help send a real advocate for working families in Southern California to Congress!
Here’s a request I recently received from Bill Hedrick’s campaign. Perhaps you may be interested in doing this:
We have only 9 months until the primary and 14 ’til the General Election.
There is so much that needs to be done in that time frame. In fact, one of the
things we need assistance with is someone to host a house party for Bill.
The campaign has a goal of doing three of these house parties before the
end of October. We are hoping to have 15-20 people there, and it is a wonderful
opportunity for Bill to outline his vision with friendly faces. It gives us a
chance to frame a message that will get us the 15% of Republicans we need to
Please let us know if you would be willing to host the event and we will
get you all the details quickly. We are looking to have them in Riverside,
Corona and in South Orange County. Once again thank you for your support of
For those, who are unable to host, but are willing to attend an event, we
have one scheduled on Tuesday, September 25th at 6:30PM at Karen and Dave
Kulick’s Home in Norco. For directions and to RSVP please […] visit the
website at http://www.hedrickforcongress.com./
OK, doesn’t this sound like fun? Wouldn’t you like to host a party in your neighborhood, and give your neighbors a chance to get to know someone who would actually like to do something about the issues that residents of the 44th District care about, such as ending the Iraq War and fixing our broken health care system? And come on now, wouldn’t it be great to actually do something that will help get rid of someone who doesn’t care about what residents of the 44th District care about?
If we truly want to do something to change the direction of our country, then we need to begin taking action in our local communities to deal with our local problems. And right now for South Orange County, one HUGE problem has been Ken Calvert’s lack of interest in doing something about the important issues that local residents care about. Whether he is ignoring the real science of climate changeÃ‚Â or the real quagmire that is the Iraq Occupation, he is ignoring the things that we really care about. This needs to change. And if Calvert isn’t willing to change, then why not change representatives in the 44th?
If you’d like to join Bill Hedrick in making change happen in the 44th, then consider hosting a house party. Or if you can’t do that, sign up to volunteer for something you can do. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to let the campaign know how you would like to help, and just go from there. Now that doesn’t that feel better? I don’t know about you, but I always feel better after I signed up to do something to change things for the better. 🙂
